2009 Week 14 NFL Ratings/Rankings and Summary

Week 14 of the NFL season is complete and there were remarkably few changes in the ratings at the top.  The ratings are below but can always be found at http://sites.google.com/site/computerratings/nfl-football/nfl-ratings.

And there are still 2.  And both are now projected to finish undefeated, but who knows who will rest and how much that may affect that.  Behind them, the rest of the top-6 stays the same as well, the first change being Baltimore moving to #7 ahead of Arizona after their loss to the 49ers.

The computer did a second great week against the spread going 12-4 after 11-5 last week and beat Vegas going 11-5 straight up compared to 9-6 for the Vegas spread.  And the best picks against the spread went a great 7-2 after 8-2 last week.  Details of the picks in last weeks newsletter.  Full prediction performance here.
